Forthcoming Conferences

Bioheterocycles 2015
XVI International Conference on Heterocycles in Bioorganic Chemistry
Metz, France - June 7-11, 2015

The XVI Conference of this series will gather chemists from over the world, involved in the chemistry of heterocycles. The heterocycles in this case will generally be submitted to biological tests, both in medicine as in agriculture. The scientific program will include plenary and invited lectures by top chemists in the field and will be completed by oral communications and poster presentations.

The conference is intended for synthetic chemists interested in heterocycles and biological activities

25th ISHC Congress, August 23-28, 2015
UCSB, Santa Barbara, California, USA

Major Topics:
Synthesis of Heterocyclic Natural Products
Synthesis and Synthetic Utility of Heterocycles
Bioactive and Functional Heterocycles
ISHC President, Dan Comins; Congress Chair, Tom Pettus

International Congress on Heterocyclic Chemistry “KOST-2015” dedicated to 100 years anniversary of professor Alexei Kost will take place at Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow (Russian Federation), October 18-23, 2015
